      doctors that bulk bill in Brisbane

      Hiya

      I recently went to a doctor in the CBD and was a bit shocked to find I had to pay the difference between the bill and what Medicare give you back. Having read up on it I realise this doctor was not one that bulk bills and that you can only get free treatment from those that do.

      My colleague at work said quality of doctors that bulk bill isnt very good but thats just his opinion so am wondering if there are any doctors in Brisbane, preferably in CBD or Fortitude Valley / New Farm area that sdo bulk bill that someone can recommend

      thanks!

      Lela

      Bear in mind that bulk billing was initially to ensure that people on low incomes would not be penalized. If you want continuity of care with a GP, chances are you are going to have to pay like most generally able bodied, employed people do here otherwise you take your chances with a walkin walkout clinic type medical centre. Medical attention was designed to be co-pay here.
